Like everything else around us have certain rules, dating is also not an exception.
Of course you can, and here's several It's like we have more dating rules than dates, and just like the kind of rules that clutter up diet books, telling women what to do about how to bring love into their lives might sometimes go against the original purpose of trying to find somebody in the first place: to listen to your heart.
Here are some of the tongue-in-cheek lessons that may be gleaned from my book, condensed down to handy list form.
Hopefully they'll help you on your quest to find somebody who doesn't make you want to pull your hair out in fistfuls, and please don't take any of them too seriously.
If You're Trying to Be the Kind of Girl He's Attracted to, He's Not the Kind of Guy You Want I didn't say he's the kind of guy you're not attracted to. That's why you're taking a cab to his neighborhood at a.m., and trying to stay awake during the Kubrik movie.
But if you have to hide your CDs when he comes over and pretend you don't like The Soup and you find yourself making fewer jokes and leaving your own needs out of the equation (like if it's 10 a.m.
and you're starving for breakfast, but you don't say anything), you are setting yourself up for hating this guy even more when it doesn't work out. Because if he liked you the way you want a guy to like you, he would be cabbing over to your place and watching The Soup with you and asking if he can make you pancakes.
If He Likes You, You Can Do No Wrong; if He Doesn't, You Can Do No Right Doing no wrong includes sleeping with a guy on the first date, asking him out first, or e-mailing him a link to a video of a cat playing the piano.
That said, if you sleep with him right away, you are betting the house.
It doesn't matter if your looking for love online or offline, it does not change the fact that that you are single, and in some countries or cultures single women has a negative perception, especially if she is older.
Although we live in a modern society where everyone has equal rights, some women still find it hard to tell anyone that she is single or that she is looking for love online.
And I guess it's impossible to change those old fashioned skeptics, it's easier to ignore them by know that different times call for different measures. Not even the dating and social sites are becoming more popular, now there are mobile side of it.
